Trappe has achieved the designation of a Sustainable Community!!!

What does that mean???  Becoming a sustainable community is a designation that a Town applies for through the State of Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development.  If the Town is awarded the designation then the Town becomes eligible to apply for programs and funding to help promote environmentally, economically and socially responsible growth and development in existing older communities.

This is fantastic news for Trappe!!  Be on the lookout for updated information as the Town continues their planning process and works towards making Trappe an even better place to live and visit!
